Tesla has become a local electric vehicle brand in many countries and regions. Moreover, with its excellent self-assisted driving experience, Tesla has become synonymous with smart cars.

But any product that is closely related to science and technology intelligence, even a car, has the risk of being hacked and hacked.

Recently, foreign media reported that a hacker successfully developed a new key clone for the Tesla ca


Tesla has been informed of this new attack and is ready to launch a new patch for it to take precautions accordingly.

According to reports, the University of Leuven, Belgium (Belgian university KU Leuven) security researcher Lennart

Waters said it would take him about 90 seconds to get into the Tesla. Once inside the car, a second attack is needed in order to drive away the car. In about a minute or so, he can register his car key and drive away.

In fact, in North America, the theft of Tesla cars is rare. However, in Europe, some hackers and thieves with technology have stolen many Tesla cars by using NFC relay attack method. At the same time, most of these cars have not been recovered.


In this regard, Tesla security department has previously said that NFC relay attack is a known and unsolved vulnerability in the system.

However, they also prepared corresponding solutions. After the vehicle door was opened by NFC relay attack, they added a pin code verification step when starting the vehicle. Only by inputting the correct pin code can the vehicle be started.

But this only four digit PIN code, can really defeat experienced hackers? Tesla must be afraid to guarantee it.
